oooh I bought some of Colourpop’s new Blotted Lips and I was so excited when I got them in the mail the other day! Don’t get me wrong, I love their lippies and ultra satin’s but these new Blotted Lip products looked extremely wearable, comfortable, and long-lasting. I also appreciated how these reminded me of Korean lip products where they focus more on a “just-bitten”, gradient-like effect on the lips.
So cute! They are smaller than the usual Lippie Stix and the liquid lips, but I actually like how cute and compact it is. The only con is that they are a tad difficult to completely close-the cap never seems to click as easily as their lippie stix. It is not something that bothers me but thought it was worth mentioning.
As you can see, these are not your typical lippies. They are a lot less creamy to give you that stained look on your lips. Applying is not the easiest because of this creamy consistency-this new line seems to be made to give the lips a tinted, stained look. The swatches above were 2 layers. I do like how you don’t have to be perfect with outlining your lip shape since this isn’t a liquid or lipstick formula. It’s best to apply like a chapstick all over the lips or to dab the product on. I found myself focusing only on the inner areas of the lips to create a gradient effect.
For me, it holds up quite nicely. It is super comfortable because it’s not liquid or creamy, it really just feels like you have nothing on your lips. Does anyone else hate how dry and uncomfortable some lipsticks can get? I wore mine for a good 5-6 hours and decided to reapply after eating and drinking.
For five bucks a pop, I think these are a bargain for people who want to add a quick tint to your lips. They are build able, easy-to-use, compact, and does exactly what they are made to do. Definitely worth a try!
